Natalie's Score: 91/100

Santa Margherita is a medium-bodied clean, crisp and zesty Pinot Grigio. Pale lemon-green in the glass, this is a fuller style Pinot Grigio with ripe pear, dusty dried fine herbs and lemon-lime zesty flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food.

Pinot Grigio food pairings: pasta in a garlic sauce, avocado and papaya salad, vegetable tempura.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful, crisp, and clean. Aromas of lemon, lime zest, golden pear, and a hint of golden apple Medium bodied, clean and crisp on the palate, with vibrant, fresh citrus and orchard fruit, and a medium-long finish. Enjoy with fresh seafood or white fish dishes.
From the Alto Adige, Trentino wine region Impronta del Fondatore Pinot Grigio 2018 is medium-plus-bodied, fuller on the palate with ripe pear, apple, grassy note and white pepper spice on the palate. Fresh and crisp. The grapes for this limited-production PG were hand-picked from the Alto Adige wine region. Chill and enjoy now in all of its freshness. - Community Wine Reviews
